Staying in a Relais&Chateaux is always a good idea... The beach, even if little, is fantastic with great facilities and perfect staff. Swimming pools are also great even if you can feel they are a little outdated. The structure is huge and it can be improve.. Rooms are spacious but they maybe need a little refurbishment since cost per night...

Ticked all the boxes for us - high standard, spacious room, attentive and unobtrusive service, good beach/bay, watersports, quiet, great breakfast choice, easy reach of town with good selection of restaurants, etc. Will gladly return.

I stayed here with my wife for 10 days in September/October 2016 on a half-board basis. Let’s start with the positives, of which there are many. The hotel’s staff are delightful, helpful, welcoming, obliging, professional and everything you would wish for. That applies to all levels of staff: management, reception, waiting, housekeeping, gardening and everybody else at the hotel. Plenty...

An hotel I would recommend to anyone who is seeking a quiet relaxed ambiance, in extremely well maintained and beautiful surroundings. We stayed for 2 weeks from late September and although the hotel was well occupied there was never any sense of business or crowding even on the small sandy beach in the superb weather we enjoyed. The staff are...

What a brilliant spot, we spent most days on the beach which rarely had more than 15-20 people and was snorkel heaven with clear warm water. Geographically, this hotel is in a beautiful spot, we pushed the boat out and booked a Deluxe bungalow with pool, next door to us was a little church and an art gallery with lots...

This was our 3rd time at this Hotel and we will return for our September break again next year hopefully. Of all the many places we have been there is nothing that beats this one.

My wife and I spent a week at this super hotel. We were warmly welcomed with a glass of bubbly and staff had even found that my wife was to celebrate a special birthday so we were upgraded to a suite with wonderful views of the Adriatic Ocean. The staff were friendly and very efficient. Nothing was too much trouble...

I decided to treat my daughter to the poolside holiday she's been wanting for a long time. Given she'd just finished A Levels this seemed a great way to celebrate. A very hot day on arriving but a glorious luxury transfer to the hotel helped build the excitement. We walked in to an unassuming facade to feel as though we'd...
